Abstract:

La République Démocratique du Congo RDC - avec toutes ses ressources naturelles – est un des pays les plus riches du monde. Elle est – avec une surface équivalente à celle de l'Europe de l'Ouest - un pays riche de peuples, d'ethnies, de cultures, de religions et de paysages magnifiques. Mais ces richesses attirent aussi beaucoup d'acteurs qui cherchent à en tirer un bénéfice, profitant des conflits et d'un Etat de droit déficient.

Abstract:
La souveraineté est un principe universel fondée sur l'exercice de tous les droits de l'homme interdépendants ; elle se réalise au travers de multiples coopérations. Chaque droit de l'homme est une capacité et un facteur de développement puisqu'il garantit des accès, dégage des libertés et renforce des responsabilités. Cela signifie que la réalisation de chacun des droits civils, culturels, économiques, politiques ou sociaux constitue un développement des personnes et des tissus sociaux. Cette synthèse se présente comme un guide théorique destiné aux responsables de politiques et de structures publiques, d'organisations de la société civile ou d'entreprises, aux praticiens pour le montage interactif des projets, de leur suivi et de leur évaluation, et enfin aux responsables de formation et aux étudiants.

In the past decade the number of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) has increased substantially. This development stands to act as a positive impact for posterity.

Abstract:
The need for global values in a globalised world is combined with the need for contextual identity. New nationalisms, protectionisms and fundamentalisms are mixed with a globalised pluralistic relativism. Are global values threatened by particular values? Find answers within the 32 articles of this book. In each of the articles the authors, who are all in one way or another linked to Globethics.net, writing from one of four continents, focus and develop on a particular value or virtue in a specific geographic, cultural or religious context. Many of them also give an input to the understanding of the value-basis of the UN-Sustainable Development Goals SDGs and give orientation for "values-driven leadership", a key vision and mission of Globethics.net.

Abstract:
The Global Ecumenical Theological Institute provided a unique opportunity for a new generation of ecumenical leaders from across the globe to engage with each other and with the themes presented at the World Council of Churches (WCC) Assembly in Busan (South Korea). These papers in which the participants reflect their experience show both this engagement and the diversity of their contexts. The papers deal with a variety of themes such as: pilgrimage, Asian Christology, food insecurity, just peace and the shift of the center of gravity of Christianity to the Global South. The collection of these papers provides significant insights into the challenges faced by the ecumenical movement and the prospects for its future. More particularly they articulate the perspective of a new generation of leaders in the ecumenical movement whose voice needs to be heard.
